AB - Bacterial lipoproteins are surface exposed, anchored to the membrane by Sdiacylglyceryl modification of the N-terminal cysteine thiol. They play important roles inmany essential cellular processes and in bacterial pathogenesis. For example,Clostridium difficile is a Gram-positive anaerobe that causes severe gastrointestinaldisease, however, its lipoproteome remains poorly characterized. Here we describe theapplication of metabolic tagging with alkyne-tagged lipid analogues, in combinationwith quantitative proteomics, to profile protein lipidation across diverse C. difficilestrains and on inactivation of specific components of the lipoprotein biogenesispathway. These studies provide the first comprehensive map of the C. difficilelipoproteome, demonstrate the existence of two active lipoprotein signal peptidasesand provide insights into lipoprotein function, implicating the lipoproteome intransmission of this pathogen.
